Mr Lansley, who is working as an artist in residence at the Royal United Hospital, said: "Bath is the city of my childhood, and WalkAndDrawBath is about sharing my passion for this lovely and lively place.
"I want to create an experience that is about quality of interaction with this amazing environment of marvellous architecture and scenery. It is also a chance for people to enjoy a social, creative and therapeutic activity, with the aim of relaxation and slowing down the pace of a hectic life."
He said he wanted to make Bath a place where enjoyment of drawing was accepted "as a natural part of the pulse of the city" and would be working with cafes and restaurants.
The four-hour sessions begin with coffee before groups decide where to set up their sketchbooks, with likely locations including the Royal Crescent, Alexandra Park, Camden Crescent and Guinea Lane.
All art materials are provided, including pens, pencils, watercolour, brushes and paper.
Mr Lansley said: "As a souvenir, you get to keep your own A3 WalkAndDrawBath sketchbook. It is probably the coolest thing you'll get to take away from Bath."
Tickets go on sale at the city's Visitor Information Centre from Wednesday, with the price £35 per adult. A family ticket for two adults and two children is £85, while an adult with one child is £50.
It will operate Saturday to Wednesday in term time and on Fridays as well in school holidays, with sessions starting at 10am weekdays and 11am weekends.
